I have a Toshiba L355D-S7825. I run Windows 7 on it. I want to update my graphics card to Shader 3. Will my computer support this? Is it motherboard compatible? What's a good card with this...


The shader 3 mode is a inbuilt option that is designed within the graphic cards (i.e. intergrated or slotted cards). This function usually use for high graphics gaming for PCs. You cannot upgrade the Graphic card to get this Shader 3 options for your Laptop. The best options you can do is to update the drivers & DirectX to the latest for your laptop "ATI Radeon™ 3100 Graphics" intergrated graphic card.

Hope it helps.

I want to hook up my tv to the desktop and want to mirror the screens. I see only a desktop wallpaper image. How do I change the video card to mirror?


Right click on your desktop, go into properties, then click on the settings tab. There should be a check box that says extend my desktop on this monitor. Make sure it's unselected.

Projector only displays desktop wall paper not laptop images


stop the dual monitor moded and it will project what is on the Desktop screen

for this right click on desktop -> properties -> (on the window) Settings here take away the check box for "Extend my Windows desktop to this monitor" and you can have what ever is displayed on your desktop on the screen

but if you keep the the existing setup then you can just drag the windows to the right or left edges and it will move on to the screen and you can use the projector image as an extended monitor, this will be useful when you want to have your presentation and your background work/ Document seperate from the viewing audience, try it you may like it

cheers

Probem with connecting projector with laptop in vista OS


Hi,

You need to change your graphics card settings from extended desktop to cloned desktop.
You will find that if you use your mouse currently to drag a window or icon across to the projected screen, it will move the window there. This is the extended desktop.
I assume that what you want is to have the exact same screen on your laptop and your projector - this is called the clone screen.
These setting can be by right clicking your desktop, select properties. Click on the display settings tab. click on the advanced settings button, and the the graphics card tab. There should be another button to launch the graphics card settings there.

Hope this helps.
